my friend and i are planning to start an online business, and it will be related to the stock market. we have the relevant knowledge about the stock market, and have the contacts needed already. so, i'm wondering if there are any other skills we need to learn to make our online business a success. so any opinions?

well ive started music promoting, though you may thing 'well what the heck as that got to do with my business' the awnser is, all businesses are somewhat similar being the goal is to earn as much money as possible and become a well known brand. the key to sucess is to know you market, so dont og posting stuff on childish sites as you know you wont get much results. also you need to make the site look professional, if you need help i could put one of my designers in touch with you (he charges minimilistic and produces work like a pro) this is crucial because, ask yourself. how many times have you turned away from a site because it looked cheap yet its purpose would still serve? people wont want to be putting there money/details into your site if it looks cheap, they want a site to attract them and look very posh though be careful not to overdo it. my site will be online next week so ill link you and show you. lastly, use every oppertunity you get to promote your business, even on letters you send out make sure they contain your header. and remember networking online is peaking at the moment so sign up using your business name. afterall its free
